SFU is second among all Canadian universities for Mitacs-funded internships for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
Mitacs Accelerate funding, available to all disciplines, supports graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to conduct research with companies and not-for-profit organizations.
FASS faculty members, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students are invited to attend this discussion about creating research partnerships and accessing Mitacs funding opportunities.
How can you develop research partnerships with not-for-profit organizations and companies? How does Mitacs funding work?
FASS faculty members and students will join for a roundtable to share their strategies and experiences, and participate in a Q&A.
